If, like me, you have been at this for a while, chances are you might have some slides or transparencies of early work around. And again, if like me, you have struggled to conveniently or cost effectively convert those slides to a digital format, try the set up in the photo above. It consists of a piece of ground glass from your local glass shop, a piece of wood with an angled kerf in it to hold the glass, some sunshine, some slides and your best digital camera or iphone. A tripod can be really helpful too. I could not find any artificial light that gave me the same image quality that I got from simply placing the slide on the angled glass in the sun. All the photos above were taken by my photographer/friend Cook Neilson before he retired and left me on my own in 2001.

Very clever! I don’t happen to have any professional slides, but I love the set up you made to illuminate the slides. Very effective, not to mention the beautiful work.
